In clothing terms and the more 'adult look' I mean I don't want to look like a 14/15 year old (which people seem to think I am!) I'd like to look slightly more sophisticated, so maybe then more people would realise I'm 18 rather than a few years less. It's difficult to describe the way I'd like to dress from now on as I'm a very difficult person to dress, I like plain, patterns and bright colours really frighten me in a way. I like to be the girl who nobody notices if that makes sense? So I don't tend to wear bright colours unless it's summer but even then I wore black dresses/skirts last summer!
Living with my Dad from the age of 8 has always been great, he's my best friend and I couldn't have asked for a better upbringing, but then there's the downside I never had anyone teach me how to apply make up or how to choose shades that compliment my skin. To tell you the truth, I only recently started to know more about beauty when I started searching for fashion/beauty blogs, from then on I've had a slight idea on how I should present myself in terms of make up. But I did do silly things such as plaster myself in make up thinking I looked great, even my Dad told me off for wearing so much; he's the one person that always reminded me less is more which is the approach I've slowly taken to now. I've ditched the matte look and go for a more 'free' look, by that I mean I allow my skin to breath which reduced the lovely yellow and white headed friends!
To let you in on a little secret, I've only recently bought myself a proper make up brush set and the night I went out for my birthday my friend taught me how to use them! See 18 years of age and learning new things already. But the more I think about how I'm hoping to change, the more I'm wondering if me turning 18 is really the factor here, just because I'm legally an adult does that mean I have to act more mature in the terms of beauty and fashion?
Did/has anyone else gone through this stage when turning a specific age?
